The Cubs announced that they've acquired infielder Daniel Murphy from the Nationals in exchange for minor league infielder Andruw Monasterio, a player to be named later, or cash.

Harper has started to heat up but the Nationals' season hasn't gotten better, and putting him on a trade waiver could be a way for the Nationals to test the market for Harper. It had been previously reported that Martinez would make his return out of the bullpen. Craig Mish of Sirius XM was the first to report that the Cubs were the team that claimed Murphy off of waivers.

A familiar face is coming back to St. Louis!

Adams is in transit and is expected to join up with the Cardinals organization in the upcoming days.

Politico's media critic, Jack Shafer, wrote this week that the coordinated editorial response was sure to backfire. But, he said, the newspaper values independence - a sentiment that was shared by the Los Angeles Times .

The St. Louis Cardinals have claimed former Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams off waivers from the Washington Nationals.

"Matt Adams "Big City" wanted some salsa when the Nationals were in town last week", he tweeted. The slugger is batting.257 with 18 homers and 48 RBIs in 94 games this season.

The lefthanded batter was selected out of Slippery Rock by the Cardinals in the 23rd round of the 2009 Draft, and was called up to the majors in 2012. The teardown, however, apparently won't involve superstar outfielder and pending free agent Bryce Harper.
